Vintages Wine Panel: This single-vineyard Carmenère may just be the world’s best. Need proof? It was awarded the Grand Trophy at Chile’s 2nd Annual World Carmenère Competition in 2008. Deep ruby/purple color leads to a nose of ripe cassis, dark chocolate, sage, cedar, mocha and wood smoke. Dry with loads of fruit perfectly supported by ripe tannins and fine smoky-oak tones. Medium full-bodied with a very long finish. Keep it 2-4+ years or enjoy it tonight. My note: Dark chocolate rounds out the blackberries and plums with a smoke-infused center. Full-bodied and rich. Great value for the money.

Carmenère food pairings: very rare steak.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
